Ready to dash through your TV news of the moment in 300 words or less? Away we go!

Brian Austin Green Moves into Wisteria Lane
David Silver, how we've missed you! Brian Austin Green has landed a spot on Desperate Housewives as Bree's (Marcia Cross) handyman. He can come fix up our house anytime.

And it sounds like there may be a cat fight (cougar fight?) in the not-so-distant future over this hottie, as he also catches the eye of Renee (Vanessa Williams). [Ausiello

Bachelor Winner Arrested ... Again
The curse of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series apparently doesn't just spill over into contestants' love lives. Season 6 winner of The Bachelor Mary Delgado was arrested Thursday for driving under the influence--her third arrest in four years. [TVGuide]

No Bones About It for The Situation
Rumors circulated last week that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino would be making a guest appearance on Bones. Looks like that won't be the case (no need to boycott the show now, Bones fans). The Situation, who was tentatively slated to play a slain fitness guru, will be sticking with his regularly scheduled spray tans, ab strokes and bar brawls instead. [Zap2it]

Kara DioGuardi Disappointed Over Idol
The rumor mill is still churning about which judges are in or out over at American Idol (we do know for sure, however, that Ellen DeGeneres has turned in her judges' Coke cup), so we're still in the dark as to whose faces will be staring at when the show returns in January. So who else is still in the dark? Kara DioGuardi herself.

According to her dad, Joe DioGuardi, she doesn't even know if she'll be returning yet.

"Would you believe that she did not hear--and still has not heard--anything?" papa Joe (not that one) told TV show Capital Tonight. "She read it the way you did and I did. Her disappointment is that that's the way she's being treated and she feels that's not proper."

Poor gal. We're rooting for you, Kara! [TVGuide]

That's all for today. Check back next week for even more Buddy Bites.
